Stress and Time Management for Educators. Georgia Comprehensive Guidance Series.
Daly, Michael J.; Moore, Earl J.
This guide to stress and time management for educators defines stress as a physiological response to the pressures of daily living and differentiates between stress as a motivator and a debilitator. The guide presents stressor inventories for teachers, administrators, and counselors, and outlines a personal behavior contract for implementing change. A social readjustment rating scale is included. The effect of stress on the body and mind is discussed and stress management techniques are described, including stress innoculation procedures. Time management is discussed in terms of planning, setting and prioritizing goals, and identifying activities needed to reach those goals. Lakein's 80/20 rule is discussed. The guide closes with a discussion of time wasters and suggestions on using the telephone, managing visitors, attending meetings, paperwork, protected time, and saving time. The four appendices contain worksheets and examples including a time analysis worksheet, daily time log, weekly task plan, and time action plan. (JAC)
